Art and Design
Education in the arts involves students intellectually, emotionally, socially, and physically. Learning through the arts therefore fosters integration of students’ cognitive, emotional, sensory, and motor capacities, and enables students with a wide variety of learning styles to increase their learning potential.
Arts education prepares students for the fast-paced changes and the creative economy of the twenty-first century. Learning through the arts develops many skills, abilities, and attitudes that are critical in the workplace – for example, communication and problem-solving skills; the ability to be creative, imaginative, innovative, and original; the ability to be adaptable and to work with others; and positive attitudes and behaviours.
At Webtree Academy, we offer a variety of art courses including Drama, Visual Arts, Media Arts and Visual Design courses to enrich student learning and enhance creativity.
